ABOUT BELLXCEL BellXcel (Building Educated Leaders for Life) is the largest evidence-based summer learning provider in the United States and a national leader in PK-8th grade out-of-school education. Founded in 1992, BellXcel closes the achievement gap in underserved communities through its partnerships with schools, school districts, and other youth-serving organizations to reach 15,000 students annually across the country.
BellXcel partners design and deploy holistic, scalable summer and afterschool learning experiences utilizing BellXcel's comprehensive, evidence-based out-of-school-time education solution.

BellXcel strives to make a difference in the lives of children—called BellXcel scholars—along with their families and teachers. Standardized tests indicate that BellXcel scholars consistently gain the equivalent of two months of classroom instruction in literacy and three months in math skills during the summer program.
